What are your general comments?

"the interviews are absolutely no stress. this was my first itnerview so i was pretty nervous but there was no reason to be. my first interviewer was the retired navy man that everyone talks about. he's great to interview with - he just basically talks the whole time and tells you a bunch of funny anecdotes. the next thing you know your interview is over. next i interviewed with dean pisano. his is open file but the others are closed file. i got the impression that he had already decided whether or not he liked me from my application because he didn't ask me too many questions. he's interesting to talk to - no grilling or tough questions even though he's the big man on campus. he'll just ask you questions directly from your application."
